VIDEO GAMES: Lego Batman 2 To Have A Shared DC Universe

VIDEO GAMES: <i>Lego Batman 2</i> To Have A Shared DC Universe

A promotional photo has leaked online for the upcoming sequel to the Lego Batman video game that will be titled Lego Batman 2: Super Heroes, that shows us that the new games will have a shared universe with other DC superheros.

The people over at Bricktuts have gotten a hold of a promotional image from the upcoming Lego Batman follow up Lego Batman 2: Super Heroes. The image shows Batman and fellow DC universe character Superman. According to Brichtuts the game will have a much larger expanded universe including the likes of Green Lantern and Wonder Woman as well.

From Bricktuts:

An image of the new upcoming LEGO video game called “LEGO Batman 2: Super Heroes” has been revealed. The game will include all of DC Comics characters, which include Batman, Superman, Green Lantern and Wonder Woman! The game is rumored for 2012 and will likely be released for all platforms.

The game is rumored to be released around the same time as The Dark Knight Rises, as some sort of promotional tie in, which would explain why Batman's suit has went from grey to all black. There is nothing confirming this however. It is also worth noting that it appears Superman have his red underwear on as well, meaning this most likely doesn't reflect DC's new 52. With the first game selling over seven million units it is no surprise that they are trying to expand on its success. Are you likely to pick this game up because of the shared universe or would you have rather just left it a Batman only title. As usual leave your comments in the comment boxes below.

I remember seeing this a week or two ago, wasn't sure if it was legit though.
Awesome news though, could be the best LEGO game to date.

I'll definitely be picking it up.

Makes me laugh that dc are having to use batmans name as advertisement, surely it should just be lego justice league? Regardless of its name, i will definately have this game, such a big kid when it comesmto the lego series.

No lie, Lego Batman is one of my favorite games ever!!!
BillyBatson1000 - 11/28/2011, 9:59 AM
Word of warning. Don't look at the Lego Batman in the eye.
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 11/28/2011, 10:05 AM
Oh, man!! This is my favorite LEGO game of all time. So, I hope that this is true 'cause I want this game. Now, if Marvel could do the same by making a Marvel LEGO game. That I would definitely get! They could do like The Avengers, or do a Spider-Man one.
AraxisHT - 11/28/2011, 10:08 AM
This sounds awesome!
maniaonline - 11/28/2011, 10:15 AM
yeah, I'm really hoping next year we get LEGO Avengers!

thats cool. Me, my wife, and our son love playing lego batman together, i really wanted them to make a lego dc game where you get many different dc super hero's and villains. I guess this will work if you get all the different people. That cover looks fake though. I hope it isn't, because green lantern is the man.

I just wonder how much longer before dc changes its name to just batman comics. IT will become BC comics, and we will have everything under the batman titles. lets face it, they have slowly been heading that way.

DC - Detective Comics

as a Superman fan, in a purely geeky and unrealistic way, I have always thought that's a subtle dig at my guy, that the caped crusader is the true flagship character of the company.
TheDpool - 11/28/2011, 11:16 AM
It should just be called LEGO: DC Universe shouldn't it?

But still would be cool if it does expand to the other characters (Actually having a full set of missions for each character) instead of being just batman and having the other characters join you on batman missions.

LEGO: MARVEL should be the next inline now tht would be a good buy

This is a really great idea. It entered my big beautiful brain when i played the original but never thought it would happen. I'm smiling under my mask i wear when i sit at my computer.
spidey1994 - 11/28/2011, 12:58 PM
[frick] YES!!!!!
Checkmate - 11/28/2011, 1:12 PM
[frick] yes, Lego Batman is my favorite Lego game.
mgeoff88 - 11/28/2011, 1:36 PM
Awesome! Me and my friend were talking about them making a JLA Lego game back when they released the first game. While it's not the entire Justice League, it's still cool.

I hope they have online co-op for this.
BatSlam - 11/28/2011, 2:37 PM
@write33, i know what dc stands for, I was making a joke that they will become BC, for Batman Comics. Seeing as they put batman out there for everything. he is DC's biggest focus. If this game includes all of the DC Universe it should have a different title.
